How is this newsworthy?

Okay, so a 20 year old college student spends 41 hours at a Walmart store . . . how is this news?

Nothing of note happened, except he got tired. Big deal. If he had completed his original goal of spending a week there, or if Walmart had some kind of reaction, or he has some interesting tales, sure . . . but the extent of his story is that he got tired and left. I'm amazed at how much attention he's gotten: "He also talked with a book agent, has been contacted by New Line Cinema about a movie concept and did a radio interview with National Public Radio."

And now he's been mentioned on my little corner of the web . . . here's to fifteen minutes of fame . . .
